. the investigations on benghazi and the irs, then it was the still ongoing embarrassing edward snowden leaks that raised questions about how much the president may or may not have known. september it continues with the president's indecision on whether or not to attack syria. he got a tiny bump when everyone was focused on republicans, but now between the government shut down and the bungled health care roll out, he hits the all time low with 42% approving of his job performing. that's getting close to bush territory. he went from 75% in 2002 and at this point in his second presidency was 39% around the time of katrina. democratic pollster. all right, guys. october shock waves is the theme of both of those polls. i went through the president's numbers, fred. for a long time he had just stayed above water when it comes to all of the washington mess. he was at the end of the day seen as somebody at least outside of it a little bit. not anymore. >> you had a shut down that was finished for a purpose and most voters don't know why. you have a health care roll out that doesn't seem to be going we
a literal run in with a camera. >> usa today, edward snowden has a new job working for a russian website. it starts earlier this month. they didn't name the company for security reasons. "the washington post," employees of the department of homeland security may have boosted their pay with overtime they didn't earn. with o.t., it's $8.7 million a year. this tactic could add money to a paycheck and used to recruit new workers. >>> san diego union tribune, a police officer issued what many believe is the first ticket for driving while wearing google glass. oh, my god. this woman was caught after being caught for speeding. she plans to fight the ticket. it was blocking her vision and causing a distraction. >>> from "the washington post," the moment air travelers have been waiting for. as long as they don't allow talking on phones. >> what? >> the faa finally agreed to let passengers use electronic devices like tablets and phones throughout flights. >> oh, my gosh. >> reporter: on this halloween travel day with costumes on full display at the airport, there was a treat awaiting travelers. >>
to parts of new england. >> the nsa is denying reports based on documents leaked by edward snowden that it secretly broke into a main connection link that connects yahoo! and google data centers overseas. >>> the boston red sox clinched their first title home at fenway since 1918. congrats to them. >>> straight ahead, some serious questions this morning for those of you with kids who play sports. kids and concussions. a new report sounding the alarm and putting at least some of the blame directly on parents. >>> we have a quick programming note to tell you about. tomorrow and monday on "today" bernard carric speaks out. >> he sits down and talks about his release from prison and president bush's nominee for security. we'll have part one of our interview and he will join us live in our studio coming up on monday morning. >>> let's begin this half hour with a texas police officer hailed as a hero. she was shot twice, once in the face, still managed to pursue the suspects. nbc's janet chandley has more on this. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt, talk about true grit, a 40-yea
harvesting those phone calls. edward snowden has not only gotten in the middle of the united states versus the rest of the world, he's gotten in between the governments and their own spy agencies, which is perhaps one reason why the article is saying, let's not worry too much about this. let's move onto the -- >> nothing to see here. >> let's move onto the economic discussion. we don't want to get too deep in the weeds. >> you would need a greyhound depot for the buses that people are trapped under. dianne feinstein, a muscular proponent of expensive surveillance and has repeatedly carried water for two administrations to expand the surveillance laws is furious apparently by her own statements primarily because she was out of the loop. she like the president reportedly out of the loop. the nsa out of the loop compared to obviously some of their targets. the only loop that seems to work here is at the nsa itself, where you have 25,000 employees working on a bunch of important security stuff and a bunch of other stuff, which if you believe the president, is nonessential. and is not part of o
that nsa leaker edward snowden could be granted clemency. i want to bring in benjamin carden. senator carden, glad to have you here, sir. >> alex, good to be with you. >> edward snowden released what he called this manifesto for the truth. he says current debates about spying just prove his revelations are helping bring about change. what's your response to that? >> mr. snowden has caused real damage to this country. the manner in which he has conducted these releases have compromised our national security. as senator feinstein said, there's a way in which a whistleblower can get information to us. we want to make sure there's adequate oversight on the powers of the intelligence community. we need the right balance to keep us safe and protect the rights of americans. so there's concern on how we collect data, but for a person who has been given that access and trust on his own to do this type of release is detrimental to our country. >> sir, as you serve on the senate foreign relations committee, i know you're privy to things we are not necessarily. do you believe what we know so far
question. this relates to edward snowden and being a contractor for the government. 17% of your employees have some kind of security clearance. >> that's correct. >> that's correct? okay. so what is the lesson of edward snowden in terms of being able to track your employees to make sure there's not more like that if that's -- i mean, there's some people who think he's a hero. i don't want to suggest anything. but given your role as a government contractor of trying to avoid that. and how do you think the government's going to change its relationship with contractors as a result? >> well, a lot of questions there. let me start with this premise. i got my first security clearance when i was 18 years old. i had joined the military, i was in military intelligence. and as a result of that, i signed a document that said i would not disclose the items that i came about. somebody chose -- mr. snowden chose to disclose that and as a consequence, we're in the dialogue that we are in today. our -- the government has been buying services from the private industry since the first world war. there's mi
in the wake of weeks by former nsa contractor edward snowden. >>> a number of comments about janet yellen starting to come from the senate. richard shelby says he would oppose efforts to block her nomination with a filibuster unless some disturbing disclosure emerge. his comments come after senator rand paul said he instead to withhold her nomination. and senator lindsay graham has vowed an effort to block white house nominees until the obama administration comes forward with more information about benghazi. shelby's comments are important because democrats would need to pick up only five republicans vote to clear procedural hurdles and bring yellen's nomination to a full senate vote. yellen's nomination needs only a simple majority. joining us this morning from washington is eamon afterers. this is getting back to some tense times in the senate when it comes to these nominations. we thought we had averted these issues. >> mccain threatening to pu put a whole here on janet yellen in the united states. they wanted to see more of these documents related to ben fwazzy. they wanted to see the
is for david ignatius for sure. new reporting confirms what edward snowden leaked last week that the scope extends to some of america's closest allies abroad. the "wall street journal" reports that the national security agency ended a program that spied on as many as 35 world leaders after the white house ordered a review over the summer. officials say several programs have been shut down and others are expected to be close to the later date. the report states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark. unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. the targets of the programs are not decided by the president, but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the program saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> i think the president should stop apologizing and being defensive. the nsa saved thousands of lives not just in the united states, but in france and germany and throughout europe. we are not doing this for the fun of it, but to gather intelligence that helps not just us. >> there reports out of germany that the president did
have denied the charges against them. >>> the u.s. isn't showing any leniency toward edward snowden after he pleaded for international help and asking for the u.s. to drop spying charges against him. a german lawmaker released the letter friday following a meeting with snowden in russia. snowden said he would like to testify before congress and he would be willing to help officials in germany investigate alleged u.s. spying there. >>> honda is recalling more an 300,000 odyssey minivans to fix a problem that can cause the vehicle to break without warning. it affects the 2007 and 2008 model years. honda said the fix won't be available until next spring so it's mailing out instructions telling owners how they should drive to prevent the problem from occurring. >>> a scare for denver nuggets fans at friday night's home opener and it wasn't just the score against the trail blazers. before the game the mascot rocky was lowered from the ceiling of the pepsi center to the floor for player introductions. the fans cheered and spotlight on him but one problem. rocky was apparently unconscious
of this discussion is the source of many of these nsa disclosures, edward snowden, he's appealing to washington to stop treating him like a traitor. he made the appeal in a letter that he gave to a german politician who visited him in moscow. what do you think of snowden's request here? >> i think we've had a very important debate that's been kindled by these leaks. but i have little sympathy for mr. snowden. he's done enormous damage to the country. if he were a man of conscience as he claims to be, he would have in a civil disobedience way, face the music here at home. but he fled to those authoritarian regimes that care nothing about privacy. part of what he is doing is designed more to inflict damage on the united states than to make a cause out of privacy. >> part of that here, snowden offering to testify in germany about american eavesdropping methods. if germany grants him asylum there, what would you do to stop that? >> i hope germany won't make that decision. germany understands just as we do that we can't have people working within our intelligence community or people working within t
were talking about is how remarkable it would be that edward snowden might have known about this and barack obama didn't. then the other thing that strikes me is, you know, obviously i under that these programs are very controversial but the amount of controversy over this program is a little bit higher it seems than when we found out they were collecting bulk data on regular citizens. diane feinstein the chairman of the senate intelligence committee is outraged over this disclosure but fine with the other ones. >> what's worse to express, mike barnacle, that i think it's many world leaders that have this happen to them not just angela merkel and i wonder if that should have come out or if that creates more of a firestorm. but, again, it's not george w. bush sitting there with his head phones on listening to angela merkel's conversations, or president obama, it's very different. mike? >> but, mike, if the president knows, if he's getting this intel and if these reports are right that the white house and the state department signed off on it he knows without sitting there wi
if they will be charged. the cause is still under investigation. nsa leaker edward snowden has a message for the u.s. stop treating me like a trader. -- traitor. snowden is under temporary asylum in russia for leaking the nsa's secret playbook and faces espionage charges in the u.s. tucker. >> hey, clayton what needs to be done to prevent these kind of attacks. jonathan gillian. thank you for joining thus morning. >> good to be with you. >> i want to put up on the scene -- screen. there have been couple of shootings. gunman killed himself in houston. 2010, new orleans, one dead, one wounded and famously in los angeles 2002, two dead and three wounded. do you see a pattern here? >> well, obviously we see a pattern of individuals that are drawn to this for some reason. i'm not exactly clear why people who have rage are drawn to this. but, yeah, we definitely do see an issue with this. and i think probably one of the things that allows people to go there and do or draws them there is the access to the airport. and the importance of the airport. so they probably look at this as something that almost like a go
